DT A Creative Romance - Winter Blues

Happy happy Friday people!  This is my 2nd post today (haven't I been busy? :P ) and my very first post as a DT member for A Creative Romance....sooo exciting!

Our theme this week is an easy one and perfect for this time of year it's 

Winter Blues

Simple right?  I decided that I wouldn't go with an obvious Christmas Card, though you could use this for one it's also very suitable for a winter wedding (I saw one at the Ice Hotel a few years ago that was just fab!) or a winter anniversary or engagement.

I used a Go Kreate die to create the shape. The papers are Wintertime in Swedish Lapland by Pion Design.  They've been lightly distressed with DI in Chipped Sapphire and sewn with a mixture of light and dark blue top stitch thread.

The image is from Tiddly Inks Victorian Couple, this is a Digi but yu can get it in clear rubber also.

The ticket stamp and matching die are from Whimsy.

Velvet ribbon, seam binding , bead trim and lace are from The Ribbon Girl

The snowflake die are from La La Land Crafts and the flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts, they've been coated in Twinklets Diamond Dust to give a frosty feel to them.

I do hope you like it, please pop over to the A Creative Romance blog and check out the rest of the Elegant Artisan's creations, they really are stunning.  If you have the time we'd love for you to join in with our challenge, it's a nice easy one and we'd love to see what works of art you create.
Enjoy the rest of your day, it's nearly the weekend!! :)xx

This card will go into my Etsy store at the weekend along with a couple of my other recent cards.
